Ray RiceThe Baltimore Ravens took a couple big hits last week on the defensive side with Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb both going down for the rest of the season.

The defense has already struggled against the run and without Lewis there to plug up the middle the Texans' running game could have a field day this week.

Baltimore Ravens (5-1): Joe Flacco has been inconsistent and has only eclipsed the 300-yard mark twice this season.

Just a week after Rodgers threw for six touchdowns against the Texans' defense, Joe Flacco gets his chance to see what he can do.

Ray Rice is the No. 2 ranked running back in fantasy land. Rice can beat you in two ways on the ground and through the air. Rice already has 715 all-purpose yards and five touchdowns.

Torrey Smith is another one of the inconsistent products on this Ravens offense as his target numbers have fluctuated this season.

Anquan Boldin has put up some surprising numbers to some so far this season and is leading the Ravens in targets with 44 through six weeks.

Dennis Pitta has disappeared from the Ravens' offense and is starting to become a very risky play.

Good starts: Joe Flacco, Ray Rice, Torrey Smith, Anquan Boldin

Middle of the road: Dennis Pitta

Bad starts: Jacoby Jones


Houston Texans (5-1): Matt Schaub is a tough fantasy option but could be used as a decent bye-week filler.

Arian Foster is the No. 1 ranked running back in fantasy land and is a must play every week as a match-up proof player.

Andre Johnson has been average at best this season but is coming off a decent game after being targeted 12 times against the Packers.

Owen Daniels is second on the Texans in targets (38) and leads the team in receptions (26). Daniels is the No. 4 ranked tight end through six weeks.

Good starts: Arian Foster, Owen Daniels, Andre Johnson

Middle of the road: Matt Schaub

Bad starts: Kevin Walters
